Two weeks ago I was in these area, splendid for stroll and bike trip.
The Leie (Dutch) or Lys (French) is a river in France and Belgium, and a left tributary of the Scheldt. Its source is in Pas-de-Calais, France, and it flows into the river Scheldt in Ghent, Belgium. Its total length is 202 kilometres (126 mi).
De Lys, spread over the municipalities Deinze, Sint-Martens-Latem and Zulte, to you also, art, nature or sports enthusiast, hiker, biker epicurean to offer.
It is a very polluted river due to the high density of population and industry in the North of France and in Belgium. Historically, the Lys valley was known for the spinning and weaving of flax. The region of the Leie (between Deinze and Ghent) used to be known as a favourite place for numerous painters in the first half of the twentieth century.

I wish every visitor a nice weekend
